2003 Kawasaki Vulcan won't start
Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I recently bought a 2003 Vulcan and immediately having issues with it. I bought a new battery 2 days ago and the motorcycle wont start. Instead it makes a clicking sound. Once I jump start it, it turns on and stays on but as soon as I turn it off, and turn it back on its doesnt start but makes the clicking sound. I checked the battery using a multimeter and the voltage jumps between 11.15 and 11.45 volts so im assuming its not a stator issue. could it be a battery issue as the sticker on the side of the battery says "09/14"? Could the battery be old and sitting on the shelf for too long? Please advise me as this is very frustrating especially for a person who is just getting into the hobby. Hoping for some very useful responses. Thank You.
